I was in the Tywyn Co-Op last week and spotted these two leaflets in the leaflet holder by the tills. Do pick one up if you’re there. Each of them consists of a fold-out map of Tywyn – Walk 1 is The Old Town and Walk 2 is The Seaside. The map is numbered, and brief details are given about each of the numbers, so that you can do a self-guided tour. Introductory paragraphs also give a short overview of the origins of Tywyn and its development. In something this size (A3, printed on both sides) not a huge amount of detail can be included, but it’s a great starting point for getting to know Tywyn a bit better, and a good jumping off point for future research. Devised and published by Tywyn and District History Society, their production was partially supported financially by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
